The New Daily Study Bible is the revised, updated edition of William Barclay’s Daily Study Bible Commentary. The original 1956 version is one of the most loved, easy-to-read and often-quoted commentaries of all time. Using a more contemporary vocabulary, this updated edition clarifies many of Barclay’s illustrations and will allow a new generation to appreciate his wisdom.
The New Daily Study Bible can be used for both devotional and serious Bible study. Useful for individual or group use, it can help you see what the message of the New Testament means for your daily life.
Dr. William Barclay was the professor of Divinity and Biblical Criticism at the University of Glasgow and was widely acknowledged as a leading theologian and expert in biblical languages. As a professor, he dedicated his life to “making the best biblical scholarship available to the average reader.”
This commentary doesn’t set a program of daily study as the name suggests, but rather, Barclay did something unique. His commentary takes you verse-by-verse through his own translation of the New Testament. He lists and examines every possible interpretation known for each text and provides all the relevant background information. Best of all, he clearly states everything in layman’s terms, so anyone can understand. The nuances found in the Greek text are carefully explained, and using this commentary in Wordsearch makes it even easier to follow. Each Greek word appears as a hyperlink to your Strong’s Dictionary so you can see more definitions.
